Today once more we start with the ever-important undercurrents, which are the actual significant drivers of the developments beyond the ongoing tactical vagaries of the battlefield. Putin had a meeting with Erdogan where he reiterated Russia’s stance on the grain deal—that it cannot go forward until Russia’s demands are resolved. Putin mostly spoke about the economic factors related to this, however adjacently Shoigu released a statement on the military side; namely, that part of the deal was Ukraine cannot build or launch offensive naval drone strikes from the port areas, which he says they have been doing.
Anyone notice how in the BBC video when they showed the cemetery, the morgue and the lady that joined up they all had the Red and Black Bander flag? And that she was in the "Aidar Battalion"? These aren't just regular Ukrainians. These are the Nazis.
Taking poorly trained 17 year old boys to face the Russian army is terrible
The last video…the heart and soul of the Mother~Fatherland💙🇷🇺❤️Thank you, my bestie of the far away reaches. ❤️🐈⬛
Excellent. Thank you.
All of this death and destruction. May God have mercy on us.
Difficult to see how Turkey can be allowed to join BRICS while a NATO member.
NATO would require it to do everything possible to undermine BRICS and, at least under Erdogan, Turkey is such a weasel that it would comply.
It is simply not possible to be in any way allied to the West and be a good faith member of BRICS.
History repeats itself, Azov Nazis will execute for a second time German and Polish Ukrainian refugees in an alike Auschwitz war zone camp. Who said European Union, NATO and Washington are different from extermination lager?
I read this when it hit my inbox hours ago, but waited until now to make this comment. It would appear that not only would Monsanto, Cargill, the USG, and various petroleum firms in the west want Donbass depopulated of men between the ages of 17-49, but also all of Ukraine. Not only that, but the Ukrainian parliamentarian elites and their oligarchic and western billionaire/USG/UKG backers. It's all falling into place for me now. This is a depopulation exercise in the interest of removing obstacles to land and resource control by the western FIRE/energy/agriculture sector billionaire (and shareholder) elites AND the oligarch owned Ukrainian corrupt political elite which stand to benefit in the exact same way when there are no men in their prime to contest the land, resource, and other property grabs to come under disaster capitalism.
TL/DR: This is absolutely one of the most disgusting banker-elite wars in all of human history.
Sir, one question if I may... I am quite astonished that the ukro can continue fly their drones.
I understand that filling the airwawes with EW disruptive signals could be detrimental to Russian own drones, and maybe risky to the EW emitters as Harm missiles could fly, so maybe it is a second best decision, but... it's something I don' like...
My two cents...
"Well…better than being dead, I guess."
I would rather be dead than lose my best friend.
All very mind numbing on so many levels.
Beslan... Like so many tragedies happened previously in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Vietnam, Korea, Somalia and so and so... All US foreign policies since WW2 caused so much deaths and destructions, but the bill have to be paid one day in the future and I see that day is very near. They shall fear the retribution that is coming to get them.
"But despite the massive unprecedented losses, how worried should we be that Ukraine continues to still make some incremental progress?"
"Personally, I’m not worried at all with their level of advancement so far."
Worried? Are you writing for the Russian MoD? Or are you part of their propaganda unit? If not, then why are you using that word in something that's purporting to be an objective analysis of the situation? Sorry mate, but if you're using that word, you're not a journalist. You're a partisan and you're not to be trusted.
So, if I understand the Ukrainian draft policy, you only get exempted if you are dead. Sounds fair; those with a serious disease, or 1 or more limbs missing, or other such discomforts, just need a kick in the butt and get moving to help kick the Russians out and win this war. 🤣
The picture of Surovikin and his wife was taken in Moscow and not Sochi, this is obvious by the trees in the background.
